Leslie: "Do you ever feel bad about what you do?"
Parker: "Everyone steals. Some people admit it to themselves, some don't. It's what human beings do. That's why we invented locks."
release year: 2013
viewing setting: home Bluray 4/28/14
synopsis: When a thief is betrayed and left for dead by his partners, he focuses all of his considerable talents on getting revenge.
impressions: Good low-key thriller. Well, maybe not that low-key. There was a good bit of violence, including a great prolonged one-on-one fight between Parker and an assassin. The movie had some room for humor, thanks mostly to the Jennifer Lopez character and her mother.
acting: Jason Statham is Parker, who's good with both his mind and his fists. Michael Chiklis is the leader of the gang that betrayed him. Jennifer Lopez is a real estate agent who gets involved.
final word: Solid heist/action movie.
